      Description

      We are currently using the environment variable GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID to detect if we are running a gnome desktop environment.

      The above variable has been deprecated and is no longer used.

      See : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/hardinfo/+bug/285445

      I am on unity and I do some dev libraries of gnome installed. Now even though my desktop environment is unity, since GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID is set in my environment, it is incorrectly detected as Gnome and this results in picard looking at the wrong place for icons.

      This hampers the ui themeing.
